A Note About Harvest Calendars

Harvest seasons don't run quite like clockwork. Changes in the weather each year, for instance, can move harvest dates up or set them back by weeks. Farmers are also constantly striving to extend the harvest season on each end, with new growing techniques and crop varieties. But these charts should give you a pretty good idea of the prime harvest season for various fruits and vegetables.  If you have information about harvest seasons in your part of the world and would like to add it here, please forward the data, with a note about its source, to:
